All about Teaki
Most dog owners are aware that dog noses are extremely sensitive. This is due to the quantity of olfactory or ‘smell’ receptors in a dog’s nose. Whereas humans have around five million olfactory receptors, dogs have two hundred and twenty million. This makes their noses exponentially more sensitive than a human’s. Most times a dog’s sensitive nose works to our benefit. All kinds of dogs are used as service dogs to help humans find missing people, sniff out explosives, drugs etc. They can smell people coming from quite a distance and alert us to their presence. There are some embarrassing occasions however, when a dog’s nose is just too sensitive from our human perspective. Most notably this occurs when dogs try to sniff humans in their private areas.
This behaviour is a common one in dogs and equally common is the fact that it upsets most dog owners. The reason some dogs sniff at a human’s private parts is the same reason they sniff the private parts of other dogs. We know that when they smell other dogs in this way they can tell the sex, rank (is the dog more dominant or submissive) age and other information about the dog.

I enjoy and look forward to waking up every morning to greet my Momma because she alway's tells me she loves me and then we go outside right away becuase my momma knows I gotta go and that's how she taught me, then I come inside and I just wait for that mailman,,,,,,,,,,, oh how I wait, but before he gets here (and walks on my momma lawn she likes to keep nice for me) I tell all my nice neighbors that I'm up and on alert, then I yell at all the wind that blows past, but most of all I like yelling at the loud and big buses and motorcycles, I like that alot, my neighbors don't seem to mind that I talk alot, I think they sometimes don't even hear me anymore because they just got use to me yelling. The most special thing I look forward to in my day's is spending it with my momma because she and I take a walk every day and I really like that alot then all the neighbors know I'm here to protect my momma and I gotta show'em who's boss as I strut my cute little butt around all our turns. I always wait for my very favorite neighbor to come home (I know what time she'll be comin too) because I know she will tell me hi or even just wave at me if she knows my momma's not in a good mood but she alway's leaves me my favorite treat in our special place and she knows I'll get it and then i'll know she is home and safe too.
